    Summary

    Grantaire is sixteen and takes a bus into the city during nights he can’t sleep to find older men who pretend to believe him when he says he’s nineteen and fuck him. Enjolras is a lawyer masquerading as an activist, or maybe it’s the other way around. They meet at the beginning of summer.

    Summary

    A Modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews, featuring teetotal kickboxers, secret wizards, magnificent bodyguards of various genders, irate fairies, imprisoned dragons, crumbling gothic architecture, arrogant princes, adorable engineering students, stolen gold, magical doorways, attempted assassination, drunken students, shaving foam fights, embarrassing mornings after, The Hammer Dance, duty, responsibility, friendship and true love...

    This story was inspired by the thought of Prince William of Wales (and indeed the current Max von Hapsburg) studying at the University of St Andrews; it is also, as the title suggests, at least a little inspired by the operetta 'The Student Prince'.

    Grateful thanks to Lamardeuse and DarkEmeralds for Beta and cheerleading!

    Summary

    “A favour,” Grantaire repeats, and his lips curl up slightly, not quite a smile yet. “What would I get out of doing you a favour, fair Aphrodite?”

    “A boon of your choice,” Enjolras tells him, because that much should be obvious. His eye catches on a bead of sweat travelling down Grantaire’s bare torso, and it is in this moment of distraction that he adds, “Anything you wish.”

    Summary

    “Here’s the thing, though.” Grantaire says, wrenching his wrists out of Courfeyrac’s grip. “People like your parents are real snobs about preserving magic. But magic was made to evolve. That’s what it’s for.” The room is completely silent. Grantaire can feel his breath stuttering in his chest. “I bet they told you that magic only works if it’s written on parchment with a quill pen or something, right?” He doesn’t need to see Enjolras nod. “Bahorel’s got tribal tattoos with more magic in them than any of your textbooks. Feuilly does incantations in plainspoken French that can stop a thunderstorm. Bossuet can literally write spells into computer codes.” He takes a step closer and lowers his voice. His words are fierce. “And if you give me birch bark and two drops of your blood I’ll be able to find you no matter where in the world you run. You were taught an archaic system that almost no one uses anymore by an elitist pair of pseudo-intellectuals.”
